How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

After Griff detects her mother is attracted to another man, she accuses the woman of only thinking about herself, and not considering her daughter’s needs. Is this a fair accusation? Do you always stop to consider how your actions may affect others beside yourself?
